The Clorox Co (NYSE: CLX) Company has been in a downward trend from early May. CLX trades below the bearish 50-day moving average line and the bearish 200-day moving average line.

Clorox shares have been on a rather steady decline after it went on an unsustainable surge at the start of Covid.

Clorox’s near-term outlook appears disappointing, driven lower by a cybersecurity attack that was disclosed in August.

Clorox is set to report earnings on November 1st.

CLX on October 4 outlined preliminary Q1 FY24 financial data. Clorox said sales are expected to decrease by between 28% and 23%, with organic sales “now expected to decrease by 26% to 21%” vs. its prior expectations “of mid-single-digits growth as provided in the Q4 earnings remarks.”

The downbeat outlook “is due to the impacts of the recent cybersecurity attack that was disclosed in August, which caused wide-scale disruption of Clorox's operations, including order processing delays and significant product outages. Shipment and consumption trends prior to the cybersecurity attack were in line with the Company's prior expectations.”

Meanwhile, its adjusted EPS are expected range between a loss of -$0.40 to $0.00, with the cybersecurity attack more than offsetting the “benefits of pricing, cost savings and supply chain optimization.”

Clorox’s FY24 revenue is projected to dip by -5.5%, based on estimates. Meanwhile, its adjusted earnings are expected to decline by 12% YoY. But these estimates could get worse since they don’t yet fully account for the updated Q1 guidance.

Why the CLX Weekly Options Trade was Originally Executed!

Clorox Co (NYSE: CLX) stock continues to tank after disclosing significant breaches that will impact earnings.

On Aug. 14, 2023, Clorox disclosed that it identified unauthorized activity on some of its Information Technology ("IT") systems and that it began taking remediation steps.

Then, on Sept. 18, 2023, Clorox disclosed that the cybersecurity attack caused wide disruptions of the company's operations and that "[d]ue to the order processing delays and elevated level of product outages, the Company now believes the impact will be material on Q1 financial results."

Most recently, on Oct. 4, 2023, Clorox disclosed the cybersecurity attack's impact on preliminary Q1 2024 financial results. The company said that: (1) net sales are expected to decrease by 28% from the prior year quarter; (2) gross margins are expected to be down from the prior year quarter; and (3) diluted EPS is expected to be between a loss of $0.75 to a loss of $0.35.

These reports have driven the price of Clorox shares significantly lower, and are not stopping the descent any time soon.

CLX stock has fallen roughly 25% over the last six months and around 50% from its peaks.
